**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 10:10pmthe first 3 terms of the AS are a, a+d, a+2d

the first 3 terms of the GS are a, ar, ar^2

you said the second terms are equal

then a+d = ar

d = ar-a

so third term of GS/third term of AS

= ar^2/(a+2d)

= ar^2(a + 2(ar-a)

= ar^2/(a + 2ar - 2a)

= ar^2/(2ar - a) now divide top and bottom by a

= r^2/(2r-1)
